On Gelfond’s conjecture about the sum of digits of prime numbers
Journal de théorie des nombres de Bordeaux, Volume 21 (2009) no. 2, pp. 415-422.

The goal of this paper is to outline the proof of a conjecture of Gelfond [6] (1968) in a recent work in collaboration with Christian Mauduit [11] concerning the sum of digits of prime numbers, reflecting the lecture given in Edinburgh at the Journées Arithmétiques 2007.

Dans cet article nous exposons les étapes importantes de la preuve de la conjecture de Gelfond [6] (1968) dans un travail récent en collaboration avec Christian Mauduit [11] concernant la somme des chiffres des nombres premiers, dans l’esprit de l’exposé donné à Edimbourg dans le cadre des Journées Arithmétiques 2007.
